By sticking to block paving, tarmac and concrete Groundforce offer just the right amount of diversity of finish without venturing into less reliable driveway options that can prove more problematic. The choice of finish largely comes down to personal taste and budget, but our team will be able to offer practical advice where applicable as to the best option for your property.
In terms of weighing up which driveway is best for your property you will need to consider a variety of factors. Firstly, the obvious issue of budget. Tarmac as a finish is substantially less expensive than block paving, which can be a deciding factor on its own. Both finishes rely on a good, solid base – something that Groundforce will always supply.
One major advantage of block paving is that it is aesthetically very pleasing and you are able to create a diverse array of patterns according to your own design and taste. Block paving, as the images on this page show can be installed in a wide range of sizes, styles and colours, offering great variety and the ability to match houses of all styles and ages.
Another great strength when it comes to block paving as any repairs are easy to carry out as the blocks themselves can be lifted out and replaced very easily. Tarmacadam or tarmac will be cheaper not only because of the material cost difference, but also as it’s quicker to lay than block paving, so labour costs end up being less.
If speed is of the essence then tarmacadam may be the best choice as once the base is installed, the job can be completed very quickly.
